You may have heard about Bioheat heating oil already, but chances are you aren’t entirely sure what it is. Bioheat is standard heating oil blended with biodiesel, which is fuel made from biodegradable, organic and recycled materials. Unique to Peterson is that the biodiesel we use to blend with our heating oil is from recycled cooking oil, which would otherwise be disposed of.
And, Bioheat heating oil is one of the cleanest burning energy sources available, which means your heating equipment runs much more efficiently, which ultimately is saving you money. Saving you money because you use less fuel and Bioheat also reduces the likelihood of an untimely breakdown in the middle of the winter because it burns so clean and efficiently. Delivering Bioheat to our customers is important because:
*Testing conducted by the National Oilheat Research Alliance (NORA) found that a Bioheat blend of 80% low-sulfur heating oil and 20% biodiesel (B20) reduced sulfur oxide emissions by as much as 80% or more; nitrogen oxide emissions by about 20%; and carbon dioxide emissions by 20%. According to NORA, when combined with Bioheat, Oilheat has the potential to reduce emissions to the lowest level of any fossil fuel.
